A Very Spiritual Experience May 25, 2013
Temple Square is the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Although only members with a Temple Recommend can go inside the actual Temple, there is still a ton to do around the square.

There is a North and South Visitor's Center. In the North, there is a Christus that makes quite an impression. In both, you can learn about the Church. There is also the Tabernacle which has amazing acoustics.

If you leave the walls of the temple, there is the administration building, but what I like the most, is the Family History Library. I love Family History and could spend days there. They have microfilm of records from all over the world. It is a true treasure trove of information.

The Temple Square is the headquarters of Mormon. You can see the history how they bring waste land under cultivation at visitor center also they are learning any languages so you will have a guide by your mother's tongue there.

To see any holes,and guide are all free. They broadcast the chorus against Mormons around the world from 9:30am in 30min every Sunday morning is must see event at Salt Lake City. They do chorus with pipe organ which had 11,623 pipes also that hole has nice sound effect as it was designed by bridges designer.

We can't enter only LDS temple as it for Mormons.

Mormon Temple Jun 03, 2011
Built using massive block of rocks similar to granite, this church is an architectural masterpiece which took 40 years to construct beginning in 1853.

The temple is adorned by symbols on its exterior, each of which have a meaning to it. This temple can only be accessed by a few selective members of the Mormon community. However, a visit to the temple's visitor center will show pictures of the interior and the history behind its inception.

There are a huge number of volunteers which speak different languages who can help you get a great deal of understanding of this place and an introduction to their faith.

Salt Lake City is the center location of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. And whether you know very much about this religion or not, this is a good place to visit to learn more of the rich history and teachings.

Even if you are only there to see this ten acre sight with it many beautiful buildings and homes and the gardens, statues and the Tabernacle you will find it interesting.

Throughout the square are explanatory markers letting visitors know what they were observing and the history behind that item or building.

Approximately a mile away are the burial sites of Brigham Young and many of his family.
